    Hello,

    I wonder if anyone can help, please. For the first time, my bios beeped 5 times at me this morning. I checked on a web site, which informed me that there could be problems with the motherboard.
    Should I worry about this now, or wait to see if it happens again.
    Could it be a "one off" for whatever reason?

    550 cpu
    480 memory (approx)
    Win2K
    The motherboard is around 4 years old.

    Thanks for any pointers you may be able to give.

    Penny

    Thanks Steve, will go look now. I may have to get my "Techie" friend to come and re-seat things, as I don't know what I am doing when it comes to the inside of the case!!:)

    Appreciate your help:cool:

    Hello there,

    All is now well with my p.c. after a visit from the "doctor"! It turns out that the cpu wasn't seated absolutely correctly, and the heatsink wasn't operating as it should.

    Bye,
    Penny.:)
